Check out MOMOs website...both products should be listed on it. The boot is "Alcantra" (kinda like suede?) and the Knob is "Sphere".

I was just looking at their site, and the vast majority of their knobs have those holes in the top like yours does. Are those screws, lights, or just holes?

EDIT:

One more question...

Are all MOMO knobs universal fit?

^^ i have a b&m ss with the b&m knob...it's not uncommon for 100 degree weather OUTSIDE of the car here in new orleans (inside the car can be 150 F no problem) and my metal knob is almost UNTOUCHABLE for any period over 2 seconds.

the good news is...it cools off very quickly (as most metals do) thumbsup

yeah but i imagine its still a hassle to have a hot handle..at least it was for me, i put on a ichibahn aluminum shift nob on a while back and it made the shifter longer since it didnt screw in and also made me regret having it on when i almost burned my hand once. does the b & m knob screw in? or is it a whole diff setup after you get a b& m...cuz i wanna get one and im curious

Thanks thumbsup Actually, the pic makes it hard to tell but the shift boot is the same color as the seats and door panel inserts...it's just the lighting thumbsup The Alcantra boot was soooo much nicer than the red leather one IMO. It's called "universal" fit but that's because MOMO includes different sized adapters to fit inside the knob so it's a snug fit...then there are three tiny screws that you put in the base of the knob to further tighten it. I was amazed how solid it is on now. With my TWM shifter as well, it's really cool how the gears just slam into place. The sphere knob was like $125, shift boot was $60ish...again, not cheap, but you can't really get a nicer knob to compliment your interior. It was just a little mod I wanted to throw in there before a show this weekend smile

oh yeh, it does get hot here during the summer but not CRAZY hot haha, we'll see how it does when I go down to California next month though. also, the holes in the top aren't lights, i think they have little screws in them but probly just to hold the sphere together. what was also nice is that the MOMO boot screws onto the bottom of the knob nice and tight thumbsup

Man, you are paying top dollars for that combo. Can't believe that the shift boot cost $60. Wish I know how to make those, lol.

But yeah, I really like the new setup thumbsup

How does that shift boot attach underneath the open hole? (at the bottom, not by the shift knob)

i used to put a towel or a sock over it but it still got hotter than shit, now i keep one of my mechanics gloves over it, that keeps it cool. plus its got red in it so it matches my interior.

how would the red boot look in my car, with the surrounding center console painted in absolute red like the exterior?

awesome man. I have that same knob but with the silver ring that matches the silver MOMO shift boot I bought too...

Only problem is that mine is about a year and a half old and it looks like shit... very poor quality IMO. I hope yours works out better. I've had MOMO before and it wasn't like this one. The finish is all rubbing off and going black, not impressed. I don't even wear rings or anything.

I'll take a pic if you want. Good luck, maybe i just got a bad one cry
